Progressive Training

From 1st to 30th October, the first Progressive Training Level 1 was conducted at Ganga Darshan. The course was attended by 38 ladies and 20 males who have been associated with the Bihar School of Yoga for many years.
Swami Niranjanananda conducted asana and pranayama classes and study sessions on the Yoga Chakra and Yoga Chakra 2. He emphasized the need to deepen one's understanding and experience of the aims set out by yoga, and thus become a true sadhaka. In the practical classes, Swamiji introduced a novel way to access the depth inherent in each yoga practice, and in the study sessions, Swamiji made the ancient wisdom of yoga relevant to the day-to-day life of the participants. He explained the need to practice yamas and niyamas, not only those of raja yoga but of other branches of yoga as well.
For one week, Swami Yogakanti conducted Tattwa Shuddhi classes comprising of theory and practice. Swamiji introduced the practice of Tattwa Shuddhi 2, in which the practitioner discovers and purifies the subtler tattwas mentioned in the ancient spiritual traditions.
The month-long training was an overwhelming beginning to the second chapter of yoga which will take yoga from practice to sadhana. In his last talk Swamiji exhorted the participants to maintain their connection with the Bihar School of Yoga and to continue on their yogic journey with seriousness, sincerity and commitment.

From 8th to 11th October 2015, the fifth 'Know Yourself Yogotsav' was held at Vrindavan Garden, Shri Guwahati Gaushala, Athgaon, Guwahati, Assam. It was jointly organized by the citizens of Guwahati; Bihar School of Yoga, Vishwa Yogapeeth, Munger; and Satyananda Yoga Darshan Peeth, Tryambakeshwar, Nasik.
In his satsangs Swami Niranjanananda emphasized the need for inner effort to transform and uplift life. In the discharge of responsibilities, one should follow the tenets of dharma, which implies appropriateness in thought, behaviour and action. One should remain committed to the higher values of life and pursue them with seriousness and sincerity. There should be continuous effort to reinforce one's strengths and eliminate one's weaknesses.
Swamiji spoke on the branches of yoga, presented the yoga capsules and encouraged the audience to practise the morning mantra sadhana.
Swamiji also addressed the army officers at their local headquarters and the railway executives at the Officers Club of N.E. Railway. He provided them with yogic clues to stress free, efficient and happy life.

Sannyasa Peeth Events

Sannyasa Peeth was established by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati on 6th December 2010, to fulfil the third mission and vision of his Guru, Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

In the modern context sannyasa has to be interpreted in a practical, logical and systematic way. The purpose of sannyasa is to cultivate and to live the higher spiritual qualities.

Sannyasa Peeth will provide an opportunity for sincere aspirants to imbibe the right samskara, be exposed to traditional sadhanas and learn to apply teachings by adhering to an alternative spiritual lifestyle based on the principles and disciplines of sannyasa.

Sannyasa Peeth will be conducting various events and programs for the benefit of spiritual seekers, aspirants and devotees.
